    Pros

    Salary is quite good
    Medical benefits are good
    cheap movie tickets (they offer discounts which makes a ticket around $5)
    straight forward projects

    Cons

    Management (especially if they are related to one of the attorneys there)
    Overbearing managers
    attitude of attorneys towards employees who are not in the legal field.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more respectful towards employees and to not bully them
    Dont talk about employees behind their backs and create an atmosphere of tension
